Ariana Grande - Ariana Grande defends sexier image

Ariana Grande has defended showing ''more and more skin''.

The pint-sized pop star has hit back at criticism she's giving into music industry pressure to strip down on stage and in her latest videos, and insists it is solely her decision to dress more provocatively.

She told Attitude magazine: ''I've seen people online saying, 'It's so sad she's becoming a product of this industry - she's wearing shorter and shorter skirts and showing more and more skin.' I'm like, 'Yeah, because I want to.'

''Believe me, if I don't want to do something I will not do it, and I say that with every ounce of passion in my body.

''I'm a very flexible person but if I feel like you want me to compromise my views or myself as an artist, you can go f**k yourself.''

While the Break Free singer is happy to evolve her style, Ariana - who first found fame on Nickelodeon children's shows 'Victorious' and 'Sam and Cat' - insists she won't alienate her younger fan base.

The 21-year-old star explained: ''I've wanted to do this forever and I'm not going to jeopardise it by allowing someone else to take control. When I'm ready to progress naturally, I will. That's something I've been careful about my whole career because I don't want to do something that will shock or upset my younger fans. They're the ones who've been with me since the beginning.''
